So I am really bummed out right now. My school's annual tournament has just been cancelled as a precautionary safety measure against the COVID-19 virus. Other schools in our Federation have cancelled tournaments too. I am glad they are taking our safety that seriously, but it still bums me out. Been training for it since the beginning of the year. I heard other school's in our Federation up north are not allowing any combatives or two person training right now. We haven't gotten to that yet. Our usual handshake is on hold right now. They have always been very cleanly, but there is even more cleaning/ disinfecting going on. Students and instructors are to go home if not feeling well. They will actually send a student home who is sick. I mean sick students and instructors would not touch someone or be in classes close to students before, but would show up to work out sometimes. Or do a private lesson without getting too close to the instructor. This is also true at my work. The managers are to tell someone showing up sick they should go home. The sick person has the right to refuse to, but the manager has to call health authorities. In the USA, some people will show up sick because they don't get paid sick leave. Or their supervisors pressure them to not call in sick when sick. It is a USA culture thing that perhaps needs to be reviewed, for even after this thing settles down. My Grand Master was planning a big trip for people to go to China. That was cancelled awhile ago. My GM is stuck in China right now. I am guessing he can't come to the US without being quarantined? Even though he is healthy. He seems to be stuck not going out much, which is very unlike him. Which means some advanced testing is on hold as GM does the advanced tests in our Federation. Curious to know what is going on with others here.
